Mariah Carey reveals her grand wedding plan

24 February 2016 / 8 months 5 days ago

Mariah Carey is planning a "grand" wedding to James Packer, but they won't be inviting a lot of guests.

The 'Hero' hitmaker - who was previously married to record company boss Tommy Motola and 'America's Got Talent' host Nick Cannon - got engaged to billionaire James Packer last month and they plan to keep their nuptials "very private" and won't be hosting "tons of people".

She said: "I'm most excited about the grandeur, darling.

"It's not gonna be a big wedding. But it's going to be grand.

"I think the most important thing is the relationship and, you know, just the connection. The love it of all. That's the most important thing, but of course I love a grand moment."

The 45-year-old singer - who has four-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with Nick - has kept details of James' proposal under wraps but admitted she was "surprised" when he popped the question.

She told 'Access Hollywood': "Darling, it's my engagement ring, we can't know when it's coming.

"We just have to receive it."

And Mariah adores her stunning 35-carat diamond and platinum ring.

She joked: "Walking through a crowd with a ring on your finger and a lot of bracelets is a little bit, you know, daunting.

"But it's hard to take it off cause I love it so much."
